Tuesday Intros -- The Diamond Caper

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.

Sometimes I get confused which Peter Mayle book I've read and which ones I haven't. He's been writing a series with a detective and an insurance adjuster who frequently have to travel to Marseille where they stay in luxury with a really rich  man, as we all do! Anyway, I haven't read this one The Diamond Caper.
Here's the intro:
Why is it that bad news so often arrives on Monday mornings?
The call came at 6:00 a.m. local time, waking a reluctant Elena Morales from a deliciously deep sleep. It was her boss, Frank Knox, founder and CEO of Knox Insurance, and there was an undercurrent of tension in his voice. There was a problem, he said, and it was urgent. Despite the early morning Los Angeles traffic, Elena was with him in his office by 7:30. 
 Guess what? The urgent case was in Nice, France, so Elena is off to France where her boyfriend Sam meets her. There's sure to be French fun to follow.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is reading.

Those early morning calls are never a good thing, even where I work. It is a sign of what kind of day it will be . . . I like the intro you shared quite a bit, and I am definitely curious about what waits for them in France. I haven't read anything by Peter Mayle before. Thank you for sharing!

Oh, that sounds like my kind of story....fun settings and adventure, too. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “HERE, HOME, HOPE”

I thoroughly enjoyed A Year in Provence, so I'm sure I'd like this book too. I actually visited Nice many years ago and would love to go back, even if it's only through the pages of a book.
My Tuesday post features Beach Trip.

I do that as well, and get a few chapters in and realize, "I've read this one!". Happy reading.
